“Food For Thought” program a big success!

This summer, thanks to a very generous private donor, the Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank is able to launch a brand new outreach program in our community. We have a new trailer and are headed out 4 days a week to different schools within Orangevale and Fair Oaks to distribute food to families in need that are unable to get to the food bank due to a lack of transportation. Very often, these families rely on the school breakfast and lunch programs and during the summer months they aren’t able to get to the free lunch sites. We will be distributing at a different school each day of the week, Monday through Thursday. We are so thankful to our hundreds of volunteers who will ensure that this program runs smoothly as we expect to be able to serve an additional 300-400 people each month throughout the summer.
